Pooled screening for anti proliferative inhibitors of protein protein interactions

Nat Chem Biol
PMCID: 5756068
PMID: 26900867
DOI: 10.1038/nchembio.2026

[…] t are human proteins whose functional alterations are casually implicated in oncogenesis (e.g. oncogene product, tumor-suppressor gene products and proteins in core cancer pathway) are selected using CancerGenes database . […]


A systematic approach to identify novel cancer drug targets using machine learning, inhibitor design and high throughput screening

Genome Med
PMCID: 4143549
PMID: 25165489
DOI: 10.1186/s13073-014-0057-7

[…] re causally implicated in oncogenesis (for example, oncogene products, tumor-suppressor gene products and proteins in core cancer pathways). We identified 1,367 cancer-related proteins, compiled from CancerGenes [] using the queries 'oncogene' and 'tumor suppressor' [] and two consensus studies [,]. To identify cancer disease gene products, we used the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) da […]


Genome wide target profiling of piggyBac and Tol2 in HEK 293: pros and cons for gene discovery and gene therapy

BMC Biotechnol
PMCID: 3078864
PMID: 21447194
DOI: 10.1186/1472-6750-11-28
call_split See protocol

[…] s were identified in build hg18 of the human genome using Blat [], with a sequence identity cutoff of 95%. Human genes were obtained from RefSeq [], and 2,075 cancer-related genes were taken from the CancerGenes database []. Upon counting the number of genes within n base intervals, all overlapping genes were first merged to avoid over-counting. CpG islands were taken from the UCSC Genome browser […]
